This Chick-fil-A Employee That Went Above and Beyond to Help Disabled Customer Will Blow Your Mind

Published

on

What is it about Chick-fil-A? Their food is fantastic, sure, but what keeps them in the headlines time after time are the acts of kindness their employees seem to commit as if it’s part of the job description.

I mean, when is the last time you heard about a fast food burger spot giving exclusive use of their dining room, along with plenty of free food, to first responders and linemen after a devastating hurricane? Or offering shelter to a woman moments away from giving birth, and then blessing her family with free food for life?

Being classy seems to be par for the course for Chick-fil-A and its smiling employees, and Ashley Guzman of the La Palmera Mall location in Texas is certainly no exception.

According to local news outlet KIII, Guzman was halfway through her shift on a day like any other. “I came in. It was a normal day at work,” the 19-year-old recalled. “It was the end of our lunch rush.”

As she was working, she noticed Arturo Ramirez, one of the restaurant’s regulars, come up to be served.

Guzman shared with KIII that it’s not unusual for a server at Chick-Fil-A to help Ramirez, who is disabled, get around the restaurant and find a seat.

That day, however, Guzman took her service a step beyond. “…We help him around and get his food,” she said, “but that day I helped him. I got him his food and I went around and I sat with him.”

Guzman didn’t expect anything to come of the simple act of accompanying Ramirez, who almost exclusively spends his visits to Chick-Fil-A alone, but her kindness caught the eye of Jessica Gomez, who snapped a photo of the touching moment and shared it on Facebook.

While eating at the mall with my family I saw this lovely girl help this man out. I've seen this man several times here…

“I’ve seen this man several times here by himself,” Gomez wrote in her post. “The times I’ve been here everyone just leaves him. She cut his food into pieces and went back several times to get him whatever he needed. May God bless this woman.”

Although the incredible photo of her sweet care of Ramirez has now gone Viral, Guzman says she certainly wasn’t doing it for the attention. “I was really surprised when I saw it and I didn’t know what to think at first, and I was really nervous because all these people were seeing it,” Guzman said of the Facebook post. “And you know, out of everybody, like, like why was it me?”

“It’s called an intentional act of kindness,” Chick-fil-A Operations Director Melissa Tamez said, noting that the restaurant’s staff are encouraged to find any way they can to be a blessing to their customers and their community.

“It tells us a lot about her. She has a really good heart,” Tamez continued, noting that Guzman is a shining example of the Chick-fil-A culture. “She loves to come to work every day.”

“It makes me feel good that I can have a connection with somebody and make their day a little bit better, or give them some positivity, because you don’t know what people are going through,” Guzman shared with KIII.

Truly, Guzman’s example is a great one for any of us to follow. Be on the lookout for ways you can be a blessing to someone today!

New Zealand Madman Bravely Chased by ‘Good Guy’ with a Gun

As with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

New Zealand

 The sheer horror and terror of what has occurred in New Zealand stands at such close proximity at this time, that it is difficult to fully gauge its gravity.

It has certainly shocked the nation itself, as New Zealand isn’t known as a dangerous, or even particularly excitable, place.  The serene and unfathomably gorgeous surroundings, along with the California-like dichotomy of beaches and ski mountains within hours of one another, lends the Kiwis the unmistakeable air of “chill” that one normally reserves for Malibu or San Diego.

In fact, this rampage claimed the lives of more New Zealanders than an entire year of homicides would have in the country.

But, as with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

That’s right; a good guy with a gun.  It’s the same story that we hear time and again, all over the globe, and it rings fundamentally true in nearly all aspects of life.

It is not enough to hope and pray for the bad guys to turn the other cheek.  No; we must also hope and pray that good men will not stand aside and do nothing in the face of such evil.  And, by God, let’s hope they’re armed.

Fair Haven, Vermont’s Newest “Mayor” to Take “Office” Tuesday

Mayor Lincoln will take the reins, (no pun intended), on Tuesday, after beating canine competitor Sammie Viger in the bizarre mayoral race.

When it comes to community fundraising, there are no shortage of unique and inspired ways in which Americans can help one another out.

Between the candy bar cartel, the car wash cabal, and the bake sale barons, local communities throughout our nation have long found interesting and unique ways to stash a little extra cash for a shared project.

Now, one town in Vermont is taking things a step further, allowing residents the opportunity to put a name on the mayoral ballot for a mere $5, with the cash raised going to the creation of a new public playground.

But there’s a catch

A 3-year-old goat in Vermont beat out more than a dozen other pets for the title of honorary mayor.

Lincoln, a Nubian goat, was chosen by residents in Fair Haven, a town of roughly 2,500 people that sits along the border of Upstate New York, to serve as mayor for one year.

The goat was among 15 other animals on the ballot in the running for the honorary position. Lincoln beat out several other animals, including cat Sassy Towle, a dog named Stella Heibler and a gerbil named Crystal, for the job.

Lincoln took 13 of the 53 votes cast, just surpassing a dog named Sammie Viger who took home 11.

The young, female goat will lead the town’s Memorial Day parade later this year, dressed to the nines in yet to be revealed “custom sash”.

And while the fundraising stunt only brought in around $100, local officials are hopeful the exposure that Lincoln brings to the town will be beneficial in as-of-yet unknown ways.
